Women’s Formal Dining in the United States of America is quite different from what is observed in India. In the US, women usually wear a white or a black suit or skirt/pants, a jacket or a blouse, and perhaps a scarf or headband. These are all the basics of a look for formal dining. However, if one wants to add variety and sophistication to this look, she can choose among different options.
Women from India may wear tops like kurta pyjama (loose tunic, usually worn with trousers), scalar (a traditional dress shirt), and Kurta Pyjama (loose tunic, usually worn with trousers). These will then be coupled with lehenga tops (also called Asian dresses) that come in many patterns and colours, from plain colours, gold to jewel-toned. The women from India can then pair these tops with casual pants or skirts in different colours.
In informal dressing, the options for tops are not so limited. For instance, the women from India can choose among kurta pyjamas, mandi (a long loose tunic), salwar-kurta (a long-sleeved dress shirt), and churidar (an embroidered tunic). They can then pair these tops with jeans or trousers in shades of black or brown. Alternatively, they can wear lehengas with their casual tops.
In America, women often choose to wear skirts and pants rather than dresses. A skirt is a more casual choice than a dress. It is more comfortable and easy to move around in. It also gives a softer look to the body, which may be preferred by some women who prefer a more formal style of women’s clothing.
Women from India often wear ethnic attires. The looks like rural women from the remote areas of India. The women may wear churidars, which are long, belted, loose trouser with a suspender at the front. These are available in many different styles, with the most common being the plain red or green colour. However, it is possible to find more exotic prints and colours, including the Georgette, silk, and even bright pinks.
Other women from India choose to wear kurtas (loose tunic tops). This means the top is open at the front but has a close neckline. It can be scorching in summer and makes a woman want to wear something light, in which case the quota can be layered or halter neck. Another top that is popular among women from India is the baba (a long overcoat). This is another form of dress that can be very informal or very formal. The colours range from white to black and tan.
Women from other countries choose formal attire for a different reason. Some of them have to look their best when attending functions, wedding ceremonies, parties, etc. Others want to make a big impact on their choice of clothes. They may have to attend an important conference or a meeting and have to be in fashionable clothes, which can attract attention and allow them to feel comfortable. When women formals, they can find lots of variety in their outfits. They can select a formal gown for a more formal affair or choose a nice pair of jeans and tops for a casual day out.
Formal dresses come in a variety of designs. They can be short and simple, or long and glamorous. They can be sleeveless, or button up. The choices are endless for women who can’t afford to buy new clothes all the time. Formal women’s dresses can either be bought ready-made or custom made. The custom made dresses are often preferred because they can be altered in any way the women like.
